About Elena V.

Hello there! My name is Elena Vardy and I am a working actress, singer, and teacher.
I've been singing for as long as I can remember. I started to study music and singing when I was 4 yeas old. I sang in a choir and performed in many musicals. I was playing and singing in most of our school shows and at the age of 18, I started performing on a professional theater stage as a Musical Theater actress.

I graduated Tbilisi School of Arts (Georgia) as a singer and piano player. Have university degree in Acting and Directing Theater, was taking lessons with a private vocal teacher for 4 years, also I've been trained singing, acting and dancing by Broadway actors and teachers:
Summer Broadway School for Musical Theater Actors (2009)
Broadway in Moscow (masterclasses and show), 2015
Broadway Dreams Foundation (Hits Reimagined Show), 2018
Walnut Street Theater singing and acting classes (2018)
However I am constantly continuing my education attending different singing and acting classes and masterclasses (currently studying at John Palotta Acting School)

I've been teaching private and group singing and acting lessons since 2015. I am giving vocal technique lessons for any levels as well as coaching for auditions and performances preparation. Singing genres I am working with are pop, rock, musical theater, jazz, soul.
Acting teaching methods I am using in my practice are basically based on the K. Stanislavsky classic acting school. However, I am combining all the experience and classes I had on my way, including well-known Lee Strasberg method, Ivana Chabbak and my own conclusions and discovers.

I am using different methods for teaching, depending on student's needs and abilities. Everybody is different and unique, so I am always building an individual program for each student.

I have a small home studio so my students can be recorded as well as practice working with microphone and/or camera. When recorded, students get the complementary audio and/or video recording.

I am offering small group lessons as well as on-on-one lessons. Small group lessons would work the best for siblings or friends, who want to learn singing or acting. Singing classes in small groups are a good alternative to private one - on-one classes, allowing students to share their experience with each other without losing the teacher's attention. The session is longer (1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes), but cheaper for each student comparing to one-on-one lesson.

Lessons are scheduled to best fit to the student's schedule when possible.

I want to express my great gratitude to our teacher Elena Vladimirovna.She was engaged with my daughter, 7 years old, during the year with vocals and puppet theater.
The vocal lessons were very interesting. The most part was given to exercises for breathing.Everything in a playful form, funny voice exercises, for young children -
it's very important.My daughter started to feel confident in her voice, began to sing relaxed, learned to hear music.
At the theatrical class, the daughter learned how to independently make dolls from various materials, to manage them, also she got some acting skills
Elena Vladimirovna is attentive, kind and understanding teacher, who wants to teach her pupils a lot.
